Running for Rooprai at the Berlin Marathon

Amigo Mobility President Tim Drumhiller completed his 20th marathon in impressive fashion September 29 in Berlin! The 26.2 mile race took him through the historic streets of Berlin, Germany’s largest city. The crisp fall weather helped Tim to a personal best time of 3:18:09. On the day, he was the 7th fastest American in his age group, with the race consisting of over 40,000 participants from around the world.

Tim ran in support of a UK-based spinal charity, The Rooprai Spinal Trust (link to facebook page). This was his second time running on European soil to benefit the charity, the first being the London Marathon this past spring. Leading up to the race, Tim raised nearly $1,800 for RS Trust. Between the Berlin and London Marathon fundraising efforts, the RS Trust team has raised close to $27,000 to benefit spinal research this year. “Berlin exceeded even my highest of expectations – a personal best time by six minutes, and another opportunity to run for the Rooprai team,” Tim said, “I look forward to continuing my relationship with RS Trust for years to come.”
We are so proud of Tim and all the energy he put into benefiting the RS Trust!
